Just wondering if anyone has shot HDV with Cineframe25 then downconverted over firewire into DV. Can this produce progressive SD images or should I downconvert in post?

interesting question. shooting sd with cineframe25 does indeed produce true progressive images with this camera. shooting hd and downconverting will most likely produce a slightly softer result since the image will be processed twice, while it will obviously still be progressive. please let us know if you shoot a test. i haven't and i don't have access to this camera right now.

A little off topic, a little on,

I recently photographed a music video in SD using the cineframe30 -- I shot some tests and liked the motion rendering much better then the cine25. viewing the captured image I did feel it was a bit softer then what I was seeing on set. I'm assuming it's the in-camera SD processing, and since it's down converting an HD image I would assume that down converting during capture would render the same results. I am very happy with the shoot - if the editor had the capability to down convert I would have preferred to shoot HD, but a job's a job.

I would assume the cineframe30 is interlaced, but not sure?
